“Lucky Find.”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

I was at Victoria and asked one of The Ambassadors at the Bus stop where he would eat and he suggested this gorgeous little cafe. I had the best hummus I've ever eaten, a large quantity of good bread and a very good latte. I went back two days later and had Babaganouge. Very nice place. Although two girls next to me had eggs and sausage, quite small portions.

“Original pharmacy features”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

The interior is lovely! I was not happy with the vanilla latte which was over-syruped and the bread and butter pudding which was too soggy.

“Pretty little cafe. Delicious fresh food”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 via mobile

Popped in for a lunch with a colleague on the way to a meeting.
The service was prompt and the food was fresh and delicious.
There was a nice selection of sandwiches, hot food, home made quiches and salads to choose from and a range of drinks. Something to suit everyone I'd say.
Nice location and pretty decor.
I'd definitely go back if I could get a table - it's obviously a popular spot.

“Lots of Character”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

Dropped by this place for a quick breakfast one morning and was delighted. The coffee was certainly good and the selection of baked goods very appealing. The place itself is an old converted pharmacy and the current owner has taken advantage of this in the decoration - making it fun and full of character. Well worth a visit.

“Great find on edge of Victoria”
Reviewed 30 October 2013 via mobile

This was a great cafe on edge of Victoria. The place had been the Queens pharmacy and all the amazing features are still there. Worth going just for this. However the food and service were brilliant. The continental breakfast outstanding. Although not cheap the prices were fair. A must go to cafe. Even the toilet was worth a look.
